My last fusion surgery in Jan 2005. After that I had nerve pain and got worse. The pain doctors at the time thought my surgeries failed. I went to the Mayo Clinic and brought my MRI with me. They waited to look at it when we got back home. I spent all week there in Scottsdale. Explaining my pain to them did not understand. They thought it was Myalgia or soft tissue pain! I was in so much pain. When I got another set of reports they found on my MRI w/ contrast "Arachnoiditis. My nerves are sticking/clumping together. I went back out there to the Laser Spine Inst in Scottsdale. I saw Dr. Weiss and he was real calm and nice to me. He said there was no cure for Arachnioditis. The nerves are clumping together and forced on the outside of the canal. Then I went to the International Pain Center at Texas Tech. Since all this was in 2009, I moved to a new place. I saw a surgeon locally as I will probably have to go to Dallas. Anyway, this guy says it is scar tissue?? I am in severe pain. It feels like a tumor down at the lower part of back/scar. I had a small invection on the bottom part of my scar and was really painful. They think I the infection or surgery caused all this pain. My last surgeon was from the Texas Back Inst. and was the best surgeon. I may go back to those guys and see what they can do. Last Pain doctor was doing injections into my scar. Ultrasound helps along w/ massge but when I get up and moving around it comes back. If it just scar tissue why they cannot cut out?? Instead of leaving me this way. Can anyone make tips on where I can go in Texas for pain management? I am tired of referrals b/c I have to wait and then when I talk to them oh we are short-term pain management....what? Now have to start over. I talked to my insurance company and gave me 2 pain doctors. No one has called. They are getting ugly about me calling to see when am I going to get appointment or if that doctor will work out.
